Today's Good News


11/12          Luke 21:1-4

1 While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. 2 Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. 3 “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said, “this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them. 4 For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has.”


We are called to give.  We are to give joyously.  We are to give generously.  The first step in giving is the tithe-10%.  Alms and free will offerings begin after the tithe.  The tithe belongs to the Lord.  Our giving above the tithe is our hilarious, generous free will offerings that we give as the Lord prompts us.  The key is that we give.
